UMES's Nine-Foot Mascot
The Atlantic 11 voters (see below) have already made their mark, with Voter Scott e-mailing urgent developing news from Maryland-Eastern Shore's
Midnight Madness Hawk Hysteria festivities:
Harry the Hawk, made his debut, sort of.
To introduce the new mascot a skit was performed in which an old version of Harry came out, danced, and then was called in to the athletic director's office and fired. Immediately following his dismissal the new and improved Harry (all nine feet of him) made his official debut to a roar from the crowd.
"We wanted to do something fun and exciting for the fans. The new Harry is larger than life and the biggest mascot in the MEAC, so we thought it was fitting that he made a grand entrance," said Athletic Director Keith Davidson.
Forget the MEAC, I'm thinking nine feet of Hawk must make Harry one of the biggest mascots in the country. (No, Brady Quinn, no need for "nine feet of Hawk" jokes, thanks.) It's a little unsettling that Harry shares a name with the Atlanta Hawks' mascot, but still, the New Harry might be No. 1 in the preseason Atlantic 11 Mascots Poll.
